The new Pro-Mod models include the So-Cal 1 HH, San Dimas Style 1 HH and the San Dimas Style 1 HS HT.

The Pro-Mod guitars are both familiar and strange, combining a familiar looking classic body with modern hardware implements. These new guitars feature unfinished oiled necks, rolled fingerboard edges, specialized bridges, hot pickups and many more.

Michael McGregor, product manager for Charvel Guitars, commented: “The new Pro-Mod series is the flagship of the Charvel line. Manufacturing each guitar in our own state-of-the-art North American factory ensures we have complete control over the fit and finish of every Pro-Mod that comes off the line.”

Pro-Mod So-Cal 1 HH

This new model is hot-rodded classic for high gain performance, combining a classic body and feel with high-output humbucking pickups. The So-Cal 1 HH comes with a one-piece quartersawn 22-fret maple neck that feature a compound radius. Providing tones fit for high-gain music is a Seymour Duncan SH-6N Distortion pickup for the neck and a Seymour Duncan T6-6 Distortion on the bridge. The pickups are controlled via a three-way toggle switch. Other features include recessed Floyd Rose Original double-locking tremolo bridge, Charvel tuners and black hardware. The distinguishing hardware of the So-Cal 1 HH compared to the other Pro-Mod models is its pickguard. This model is available in Black, Snow White, Candy Apple Red and Candy Apple Blue.

Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH

The guitar is a tribute to Charvel’s Southern California roots, featuring a 22-fret compound-radius one-piece quartersawn maple neck. The guitar comes with a direct mounted pickups - a Seymour Duncan '59 SH-1N on the neck and a Seymour Duncan TB-4 on the bridge, which are also controlled by a 3-way pickup selector and a single knurled black master volume control. It won't be a hot-rod guitar without mentioning its recessed Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo and its R3 locking nut. All the hardware is black including the Charvel made tuners.

It comes with a 22 jumbo fret compound-radius one-piece quartersawn maple neck topped by a rosewood fingerboard. Unique to this model is the use of a single-coil Seymour Duncan STK-S6 for the neck, giving it a different tonal signature as the other Pro-Mod guitars. The bridge pickup of this guitar is a JB TB-4 humbucker. Other hardware features include a Charvel hard tail bridge, Charvel locking tuners and an all-black hardware.

Charvel San Dimas MIM Neck noises

I have recently received Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 HS HT and there is a weird metallic humming I hear when playing the guitar not plugged into the amp. I have had a professional look at it and reseat the neck and check the truss rod but he cannot find anything. This drives me nuts and looking for any recommendations to what this might be. HELP !!!!
